Where to stay in Bangkok

A quick guide to the most popular areas to stay in Bangkok.

  • City Centre: The centre of Bangkok sits to the east of the Chao Phraya River and includes popular districts and attractions such as the MBK Center and Siam Square. You'll likely stay within this circle, though being so large you'll also want to narrow down your districts further.
  • Siam Square: The "cool" place to be, Siam Square offers the latest trends from fashion to food and activities. The hotels here veer on the side of luxe, however there is a little something for everbody.
  • Sukhumvit Road: Being the longest road in Thailand, you'll have to be a little specific when searching for places to stay on this road. Most opt to stay near Soi Cowboy for a night of debauchery in one of the city's most famous red light districts.
  • Khao San Road: This is the iconic backpacker hub filled with late-night bars, clubs, street eats and market shopping.
  • Old Town / Rattanakosin: Located just north of China Town, Old Town is the place to immerse yourself in the city's history, culture and most gilded attractions. This includes the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Mahathat temples.
  • Riverside: Staying riverside lets you keep close to the city's famous temples which line the Chao Phraya River. Choose your hotel wisely and you can also catch river views from your hotel room.
  • Pratunam: Most recognised for its markets, Pratunam is a hub of shopping opportunities and street food. It boasts a mixture of backpacker style hostels and high-end hotels, including the tallest hotel in South East Asia, Baiyoke Sky Hotel.
